I believe the only thing holding back Mr. Trump from becoming Dear Leader Führer Trump is the fragile system set up to the founding fathers which is simply called “checks and balances” – a system of laws with the additional balance of a third branch called Congress. Of course, because the Republican Party dominates the Congress, it has abdicated its constitutional responsibility in checking the tyrant-in-waiting. The result? Only the legal system is keeping Trump in check. For now.
